American Craft Beer Week: San Pedro Brewing Company

It is Sunday evening and the 7th Annual American Craft Beer Week (ACBW) has come to a conclusion. We ended our week long adventure at San Pedro Brewing Company, in beautiful downtown San Pedro, CA. I have been to San Pedro Brewing at least once before and they are an award winning brewpub that definitely rotates the beers they brew. It was somewhat fitting that we ended up at San Pedro Brewing on the seventh day of the 7th Annual ACBW since they had seven different home brews available. Naturally, I got a flight of all seven. I just now put together that 7-7-7 deal as I wrote this, did not think of it earlier.

The brews available today were the Harbor Hefeweizen, Port Town Pilsner, Bruin Blonde, Kings “Blackout” Lager, Shanghai Red, SoCal Tattoo Ink Ale and the Munich Spring Lager. The amazing thing to me was that they had seven different tastes that were so good that it took Tanya quite a while to figure out which one she wanted. The fact that she opted for the Harbor Hefeweizen shows me how much her taste for craft beer has evolved over the week. We may have to do an International Craft Beer Week, or maybe an International Beer Friday. We have met some great people, tasted some fantastic beer and found some nice alternatives to BJ’s when I want a flight without the travel. Continue reading

American Craft Beer Week: Spotlighting local brews

Day five of American Craft Beer Week found us at three local brewers; Monkish Brewing, El Segundo Brewing Company and Strand Brewing Company. Monkish and Strand are both located in Torrance; I will let you guess what city El Segundo Brewing is in. While we have tried some of the craft brews from each of the brewers, it was at Select Beer Store during their South Bay Tap Takeover; so we had only tried one or two of their brews. We were impressed with all three enough that it was not a problem making a special visit.

Monkish Brewing specializes in Belgian style beer and the lack of hops is quite noticeable when you have had as many IPA’s as I have over the last week. Tanya, who is a dark beer fan, actually preferred their Feminist over the Anomaly. I liked both. The sampler pictured includes pours of Oblate, Anomaly, Red Table and Feminist. Continue reading
